Abstract english

A remarkable insight into the life of every species Is it true that Penguins stay with the same partner for life? Why do most penguins keep stones in their stomachs? Why is a fat King Penguin male more attractive to the female? Penguins are fascinating animals: they cannot fly, they are awkward on land, but are as agile as fish under water. Their ability to survive in some of the coldest regions on Earth inspires wonder and admiration, particularly for the species that incubate their eggs in the dark winter of the Antarctic. Penguins explains all these extraordinary facets of their lives and more. It is the perfect introduction to every species found on Earth and is a brilliant combination of amazing photographs and stunning facts.
